Outreach Guidance: How to Reach the Hard to ReachiccdppThe provision of career guidance services for the most marginalised people in society is a continuing challenge for many countries. Traditional approaches of staff waiting in offices for these people to come to meet them have long been debunked. In Europe, there are many good examples of outreach programmes, often linked with the existing public employment services.

The following two publications provide good examples of systems responses to reaching out to young people who are not in education, employment or training (NEETs):

 PES practices for the outreach and activation of NEETs: A contribution of the Network of Public Employment Services

and

Case Study: Relevance and feasibility of Mutual Learning Programme (MLP) activity on outreach work with NEETs

If you have good examples of research on outreach guidance for the most marginalised in the labour market in your country that you wish to share and have them uploaded to the ICCDPP website  or if you have material on new developments in policy, strategy, programme, and policy and systems evaluation for career guidance and development that you wish to share with the international community,  please send them to John McCarthy: jmc@iccdpp.org.
